In 1909 Thomas L.Kay and his family moved to Pendleton in northeastern Oregon and took over the defunct Pendleton Woolen Mills and started there business there. Since then Pendleton has become renowned for their Native American inspired blanket designs and durable woollen shirts. Today the company is still owned by the family and all blankets are proudly made in Pendleton, Oregon.
The Pendleton Motor Robes were originally called steamer rugs during the early 20th Century, as they were used on the trains in the Pacific North West. These blankets were a warm, welcome companion for those who traveled by horse drawn carriage, train or boat.
